Aligning resources to benefit people in recovery and rebuild lives
Recovery Changes Lives
Addiction to substance use disorder is a chronic disease and recovery from an addiction is a long journey.
Recovery goes beyond abstinence to encompass all areas of functioning that are affected by active use as well as those that may have facilitated the initiation of substance use (e.g., self-esteem, peer group norms, social conditions).
Recovery does not happen in isolation. Allies in Recovery aims to provide recovery support services and sober living homes in the community to promote and advocate for long term recovery.
